Trackside Teen Center of Wilton

15 Station Rd, Wilton, CT 06897 - 203.834.2888

Trackside Teen Center is offering a free college essay workshop on Monday September 25th and Monday October 16th from 7 to 8pm, led by Carolyn Field. An experienced college essay consultant, Field has worked with many students in the tri-state area over the years, helping them craft compelling and effective essays. 

In the workshop, Ms. Field will review the 2017/2018 Common Application essay prompts and provide guidance on how to approach each essay prompt, how to brainstorm for a topic that will allow students to present themselves in a positive and compelling way and in their own voice. She will also review pitfalls to avoid and share examples of effective essays written by former high school seniors. 

The College Essay Workshops are free, but space is limited so reservations are recommended. Although the workshop is intended for rising high school seniors, parents are also welcome to attend.
